Black Prince Winery
Black Prince - one of the oldest County wineries with a well-appointed Tasting Centre offering the largest selection of wine in the area. Situated on a 50-acre estate right on the edge of Picton, the 10-acre vineyard includes Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and some hybrids. Black Prince was the first winery to use local County oak barrels to age their wines and vintage after vintage the wines receive awards nationally and internationally. Visit this summer to learn more about the lost craft of wine barrel-making and witness live demonstrations at the Cooperage on selected weekends.
We wanted to choose a name which was relevant to The County but ‘Prince Edward Winery’ seemed a bit too generic. We then researched the history of the Royal ‘Edwards’…
The Black Prince was an Edward, eldest son of Edward III, and became a legend in his own lifetime. He was one of the most successful commanders during the 100 years war (Battles of Poitiers & Crecy) and a model of both chivalry and courtesy. He also ruled over a large area of Aquitaine which included Bordeaux, so the relevance to wine was a deciding factor and our prince was found.
